Gainward GeForce4 Ultra/700 XP Golden Sample

When a graphics card wields the processing power of the GeForce4 Ti family, it's hard not to recommend it. The highly efficient memory management, the stunning image quality of the nFinite-FX II engine and the enviable anti-aliasing facilities guarantee results.

That the chip is the Ti 4400 rather than the top-of-the-range 4600 makes little difference in practice and the 128MB of memory is a sign that this card can compete at the highest level.

The card's nView facilities allow users to double the size of their Windows workspace by connecting a second monitor. The latter can be either analogue or digital, thanks to the inclusion of a DVI (digital visual interface) connector and RGB converter. An advanced video-in/out connector and WinProducer, a video-editing package, add extra value.

Gainward's Golden Sample rating is a sign that the GeForce4 has passed the most rigorous testing schedules, and is capable of running at top speeds. The 4400 produced a searing 181fps in our Quake III tests at 1024x768, and topping 140fps even at 1600x1200. Only the top-of-the-range 4600 cards beat this performance, and even then there was only a few frames in it.

Gainward GeForce4 Ultra/700 XP Golden SampleValue for money is a relative term and there's no denying that, even though $649 makes this one of the cheaper GeForce4 cards, it's still a lot of money. Having said that, exceptional technology never comes cheap, and for a gamer intending to take their PC to the next level, this would make a first-class upgrade.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
